Sherlock Hounds Detection Canines—The Power of a Drug Dog’s Nose
Can coffee really stop a dog from finding drugs? How potent is a dog’s nose? Are all narcotics dogs German Shepherd’s or Malinois… or police dogs for that matter? How are they trained? Bring all your questions about narcotics K-9s as we bust common myths and introduce the realities of K-9’s working side-by-side with their human partners. See our four-legged friends in action and find out more about how these special dogs are helping to keep schools and communities safe.
Kathleen Mayger has been training animals professionally for over twenty years, but honed her skills as a drug dog handler when she began work with Sherlock Hounds in 2005. Now co-owner of the company, Kathleen works with multiple narcotics dogs to help make schools and communities safer. She also uses her experience for her current work in progress which stars a female K-9 handler for the National Forest Service.
Please RSVP for lunch and/or presentation to Becky@BeckyClarkBooks.com BY AUGUST 17. (You don’t have to come to both, but we need to know for planning purposes.) Your friends and family (old and young) are welcome to join us for this unique presentation; the cost is $10 for non-members.
